As their latest album Wake Up, Sunshine finally gets a physical release this week, All Time Low have shared a super-lovely acoustic version of one of its singles, Sleeping In.

The Baltimore pop-punks have really changed up the fast-paced track, explaining that, "Cozy songs get cozy acoustic versions!" And the accompanying video is equally ace, with the band jamming in their homes (shoutout to bassist Zack Merrick's stunning Hawaiian backdrop in particular – we're not jealous at all of that…).

In a track-by-track breakdown of Wake Up, Sunshine, frontman Alex Gaskarth told Kerrang! of how the band created Sleeping In: “When we started writing this song, it all had the feel of the verse intro – more of that half-time, bouncy, almost funky rhythmic thing. It felt really good, and we were all dancing around and really vibing on it.

“But when I came to write the chorus, it just didn’t hit. And so we decided in that moment to go really polar opposite with it – we were like, ‘What if we just go straight-up Warped Tour mosh pit?!’ For whatever reason, it just worked. It’s two very conflicting things, but they’re married together in this perfect way.”
